After a stint as a futures trader in the City, James Light moved into the new homes market working as an area sales manager for a national house builder. This was followed by a move to the commercial property sector working for a firm of chartered surveyors. In 1994 he was introduced by a mutual friend to Andrew Ellinas and the rest is history.
The two went into partnership to open the first Regent’s Park office of Sandfords in Ivor Place later that same year. James' experience in new home and commercial property brings a depth of experience to Sandfords that sets them apart from the usual run of agencies. A big fan of the beautiful game, James supports West Ham United and attends most of their home matches.
